Gentle Touch Of The Tentacle
Decided to stretch my vector skills...

Generic purple feel. Might need some color rebalance. I thought putting an actual tentacle in the picture would be boring, so I just left a mark.
The background is formed by two diagonally overlapping elliptical gradients, one of which is on a smoothed out spiral.
Random-length semi-transparent lines serve as a filler on the left, so the image looks well on different aspect ratios.
The only sharp objects on the picture are logo, text and the mark of the tentacle. Everything else, including ghost copies of sharp objects, can be pre-rendered in small raster without scaling artifacts. This way hybrid raster+vector svg can be produced.
Work in progress! Current state: Generating assets in chosen colors. Additional variants of composition may follow.
For ideas and comments contact me on vladimir-csp at yandex.ru.
Main wallpaper image
Optimized hybrid SVG
Debian installer image
Possibly corrupted, needs checking, see render.sh
Should look like this:
Main image source (Inkscape SVG)
Installer image source (Inkscape SVG)
GRUB image source (Inkscape SVG)
Render script (renders some of the assets from sources)
